Kurzbeschreibung

finally see the promise of a happy future. Until an innocently placed photograph of a dead woman shatters her world.
Alex knows that Nathalie carries painful scars, but she believes there is no wound of the heart that love cannot heal—until Nathalie confesses to the unthinkable. Devastated and heartbroken, Alex’s cold, bitter anger leaves no room for forgiveness.

With her mother’s criminal secrets suddenly at risk of exposure, Nathalie’s last desperate gift means confronting her childhood terrors to protect Alex from her family’s vicious intent. But can any sacrifice be enough to save Alex or ultimately redeem the fortune teller’s daughter?

HASH(0xa27abb28) von 5 Sternen A chilling yet tender love story 15. April 2014
Von RLynne - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Officer Nathalie Duncan was raised by a sociopathic mother who involved Nathalie and her brother in despicable acts. Now a grown woman, with a career, Nathalie has turned her back on her family and is trying to recover from her past. Alexandra Messner, a psychologist, meets Nathalie when both women volunteer at a woman's center. As the two women become friends, and then more than friends, Wood gives her readers a tender love story. All this changes when Nathalie's mother and brother reenter her life. Now, Alex, Nathalie, and more are in danger. Wood builds to an exciting climax that contains many surprises. Part love story, part intrigue, The Fortune Teller's Daughter is a great read!

he Fortune Teller’s Daughter by Diane Wood is a gritty read that will hold you in it’s clutches till the very end. While the book is superb it should also come with emotional armor and a gallon jug of brain bleach. There are parts of this book I wish I could erase from my memory. At one point I actually gagged. While the bad parts are not overly graphic, they are disturbing enough to make even the toughest of the tough shudder. To say this book is dark would be putting it mildly. Are you still interested in reading it? Well let me explain just a little what you can expect.

Nathalie “Nat” Duncan is a lawyer who changed her path and become a police officer. She also spends her all of her free time volunteering at a local women’s center. So, is she the heroine of the story? Yes, but Nathalie is severely flawed, and her flaws stem from a lifetime of horrid abuse. She has suffered insurmountably at the hands of a woman who could give Sybil’s mother a run for her money. Incest, rape, child abuse, sex trafficking, and murder, all wrapped up in one crazy, evil, diabolical woman. Yep it’s all there, and the details are truly harrowing. Nat is haunted by her past, right fully so, yet despite breaking free from the evil mother’s grasp for years, one phone call brings in back into the world she thought she had left behind.

Nat’s love interest in the story is Alex Messner. Alex just happens to be a psychologist that begins volunteering at the very same women’s center. Her attraction to Nat is immediate, and this is the first time she has felt anything in two years since she lost her longtime partner to cancer. Alex is everything that Nat is not. She is grounded, open and has nothing but love in her heart. She has set her sights on Nat and will do everything she can to bring happiness to Nat’s life. Nat just needs to trust her, and let her in.

So love conquers all? Sure, but I don’t think I would classify this as a romance. It doesn’t follow the standard romance formula. This book has love, sure, but this story is very multi-faceted. To me it leaned heavy towards an intrigue or a mystery. The romance of Alex and Nat is definitely not on the main stage. Plus, there is also a sub-plot of a lesbian targeting serial killer. Nat just happens to be on the task force hunting this murdering SOB. I told you it was heavy!

So overall this book is very good. Dark and twisty, and at times very hard to stomach. Would I read another book by this author, oh yes I would.
HASH(0xa27a34bc) von 5 Sternen Dark with glimpses of light! 30. September 2014
Von Avid CT Reader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I absolutely loved Ms. Wood's first book Web of Obsessions and so I was looking forward to reading her second book. I would actually give it 4.5 stars if Amazon allowed. The only reason for not giving it 5 stars is the lesbian murders theme was not tied up as nicely as it could have been.

I will not go through the plot as others have already done so, but fair warning this books is really dark. In addition, it is not really lesbian fiction in the formulaic sense of the genre. Change the love story to be one of a straight couple and this book could easily be released as mainstream fiction. This does not make it bad just changes what readers may expect. In fact, I would think as mainstream fiction this book would be not perhaps a bestseller, but would garner much more attention and profit for the author.

Why did I like it even though it is a very dark piece? Mostly because even with all their flaws the characters were well developed and I may have hated them, but I got it. In addition, any book that makes you think is a good book in my opinion. Although a very small percentage of the population can probably relate to the exact storyline, we can all relate to situations and people who are master manipulators. How we handle such people in our lives says a great deal about us. This is true for the characters in this book.

Again well worth the read even with all the darkness. I look forward to future offerings from Ms. Wood.

What a fantastic book!
This is a very well written story that will stir your emotions. There is darkness, sadness, happiness, and love all mixed with a bit of mystery.

Nathalie Duncan thought she managed to escape her controlling and manipulative mother. She meets and falls in love with Alex Messner, a widow psychologist, only to find out she cannot escape her past or family.

This is Ms Wood's second book and just as good (if not better) than her first, Web of Obsession.
HASH(0xa27c52ac) von 5 Sternen Maybe 4 1/2 Stars 6. September 2014
Von Julie M - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I was in too worlds about this book. It was well written and had very good character development but the plot was very dark (including incest and promiscuous sex) and at times depressing. If you can deal with the dark nature of the plot, then the book itself was very engrossing.
